Veterinary GPO is a strategic alliance of independently owned small animal and equine practices. Our mission is to help practices purchase goods and services at savings not otherwise available to them due to their small and/or independent status. We are also committed to assisting the independent practices preserve and grow their businesses in this increasingly competitive environment of consolidation and integration by corporations. Unlike large corporate, academic and government practices, independent practices have long suffered from pricing disadvantages that result in low net profits and a slow erosion in the desirability of owning a small animal hospital.
Competing with the corporate practices for the type of favorable pricing they receive has been impossible until now.
Veterinary GPO negotiates pricing on behalf of member practices by using the collective purchasing power of the membership. In much the same way that corporately owned veterinary groups negotiate favorable pricing for their owned hospitals, Veterinary GPO supports the independent practices.
Veterinary GPO does not require members to change how they currently order products and supplies. Your internal processes remain the same, we simply work with suppliers to offer better pricing. Even if you are currently using some of our vendor partners, you will see additional savings with our contracts
Veterinary GPO does not process orders, we do not warehouse products and we are not a distributor.

The benefits of joining VGPO go far beyond saving on costs of products and services. VGPO was started and is operated by a veterinary business management consultant and financial advisor. We have many, many years of experience working successfully with healthcare professionals and practice owners. Our focus is to both reduce costs and increase revenue for our members. We understand it is a combination of both that will help you thrive in this competitive environment. No single vendor savings will propel your practice to profitability, it is the totality of the savings and business support you will receive as a member of VGPO that will set you on the path to profitability. Our experience has shown us how easy it is for you as a practice owner to turn around one day and find that you are getting nickle and dimed to death. We specifically seek out vendors and programs that will address every aspect of your business.
We are here to help you improve your practice's profitability and sustainability. What are you waiting for? Check out what some of your colleagues are saying about Veterinary GPO in the testimonial section.
